The Next 25: No. 16 Jalen Curry’s stock is rising as a top wide receiver for 2019

He had only 22 catches as a sophomore, but he's 6-foot-4 and athletic, and colleges are noticing.

Texas offer: No

Top offers: Florida State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Auburn

College: Undecided

Scouting Curry: A second-team all-district selection as a sophomore who already holds more than 20 offers, Curry is emerging as one of the top wide receiver prospects for 2019 in a state becoming known for producing talent at that position. He recorded 22 receptions for 447 yards and five touchdowns in 2016. It’s his frame and potential that have colleges drooling — Curry is 6-foot-4 and athletic. Those traits simply can’t be taught and a strong junior season likely means he’ll see his stock rise further up the board.
